    [x] I never comment on polls

      [x] I definitely never join a discussion on the poll options
                that were given or missing out.

    To quote Mike Krzyzewski, "The only poll I pay attention to is my mother."

    (Okay, that's a much funnier verbal joke than a written one. I apologize.)

      It's a lot funnier after I realized who Mike Krzyzewski is, and what polls he doesn't pay attention to.

    Love the paradoxical shortest answer option :)
      And it loves you...
      Love the paradoxical shortest answer option :)

      What? No love for the paradoxical "last answer" or "first answer" answers? Or the "either first or last answer" answer? What about the paradoxical "I don't vote, just comment" or "pick one answer and vote for another"?

      In fact, the only answers you could possibly give without lying are the "pool" answer and the "random" answer.

      But yeah... I liked the "short" answer best, too.

        The random choice is horribly underrepresented in the results. only 1/8th of the people who do the random thing would actually vote for it because there are 8 choices, and if i agree with the random choice i'll probably not vote for it because im voting at random.
        I use the most powerful debugger available: print!
        '... which pleases me very much.'
        "I like it very much". (816, Crow, et al)
        -Reality might not get out of Beta today. (O.Timas, "Bot")
        And should the person 'dive in', taken in a more literal sense, they would not end up responding to the poll at all.

    Best Poll Evar. (I didn't vote.)
      (x) I downvote the poll itself, because it is stupid (not this time!)

      Yeah, Best Poll Ever (did not vote neither).

      ++ cog (for the poll)

    All the choices are retarded. I'm not voting on this one.

      I dunno... that never stopped *me* before...

      Yeah, I agree, this one's so dumb, I'm not even going to post a comment.
      You can always go vote on a past poll instead; how 'bout this one?

      [x] This poll contains inherently wrong answers.
      1. I immediately vote for the last option: Um, this is NOT the last option.
      2. I vote for the shortest answer, because it's easier to read, which pleases me very much: Well then go find the shortest option and vote for it. (This option is the longest.)
      3. I either vote for the first or for the last option: Ok, is that why you voted for option 6 of 8?
      4. I immediately vote for the first option: Yeah, this is the last option. Enough said.

      ...it's usually unintentional, and almost always regretted soon afterward.
